Question SuSE 8.2 Nvivdia GeforceTI4200 framebuffer does not work


Got a problem with SuSE 8.2. and a Geforce Ti4200 AGP 8, 128 MB. The installation of SuSE was teribble - no graphic mode, just pure text installation... Splashscreen and X Server does not work.
But the Grub Bootscreen was colored...

Installation was finally successful and X worked with nv - modul. After this I installed the latest nvidia driver from and 3d worked fine.

But Splashscreen and X Server does not work and i still can't see any bootmessages. The only why to get it working is to boot with vga=normal... but you only get text mode...

Is there any way to get the card 3D accelerated and running a framebuffer console (Bootsplash)!?!

(acpi=off apm=off does not work)

SuSE 8.2 Athlon Kernel
Nvidia Treiber 1.0-4349
